If you ask people to define spirituality you would realize that no matter how much the system of language has tried to fix definitions of things, subjectivity still prevails. People have different understandings of this word, and for each of them, the form of spirituality can be different. There is one thing, however, which unites all these differences and subjectivities; the soul. Spiritual awakening or the path towards spirituality concerns itself mainly with one’s connect to one’s own soul.
The outside world is one chaotic place and we are more than aware of this fact. There is a kind of love-hate relationship that we share with modernity, and it is true that sometimes we give it a chance to get in and take a toll on us. We often find ourselves striving to get away from this chaos, as far as the human capabilities allow. This is when we take ourselves to the world of spirituality, an unexplored field of self. The materialistic physical world has a lot to offer in order to provide us with the feeling of momentary gratification, but for how long will this ‘momentary’ gratification keep the human soul satiated. The need is to make oneself equipped enough to not let ourselves get caught up in the meshes of materiality and see things with a broader and wider perspective, to lead ourselves towards spiritual awakening.
Taking yourself to the spiritual world is not a very easy thing to maintain. An individual can face a myriad of confusion, might get lured by material attractions or might find oneself clueless about their progress. The subjective aspect of spirituality makes it difficult to lay the indicators of progress, but there are a few things that every spiritual person would agree with. Let’s explore these indicators which will help you know how deep you are in the process of knowing your one true self.
